: thank you. what is interesting to me, having read the memo that was presented to us and also in the presentation, is that there is no mention of the planning commission. it is extremely perturbing to think of the department as a separate entity from this commission. so i think the process to me is flawed. from the standpoint that it is the commission that makes the decisions. it is the commission to whom staff makes all their presentations. it is the commission to whom the audience and the public and interest groups and developers and property owners and others are speaking to, and yet, the entire program we have been presented has to do with department staff, so i am not ready to vote to support or wherever the action is that we are being asked to do today. and i think that it is also -- i do not know if it is telling for -- under program parties, you are using the word " branding." that is extremely disturbing to me, to use that word when we talk about a public department. are we trying to sell the department and commission to the public like we are through advertising a product o

doing with the war on drugs was leading us in the wrong direction. the impact that it had and not only in communities -- quite frankly in our entire community was creating a situation which doesn't necessarily make us any safer and frankly, i think we have criminalized an area i think should be really looked upon as a health issue more than as a criminal issue, and i think consequently, a lot of the solutions we have tried in the last 2 1/2 decades have taken us to a place where today we cannot afford it economically. i can tell you that socially we have been broken for many years, but now the economic peace of it has come to play and that's probably why, quite frankly, we are reacting. i think we can deal with being socially bankrupt much easier than we can deal with being economically bankrupt. i think now we've come to the point where there's an intersection between the two. having said that, i also think it's important to recognize simply taking people that are broken, because most of the people that have drug addictions are people that are broken, and just simply releasing them on

crime and drug use are not that much different than ours. so if another country were to lock up its own people at the rate that we do, and if our rates of incarceration were more normative to the rest of the world, we would regard with that other country was doing as a massive violation of human rights. that's the way we would look at it. now, the other point here is what we're doing is not even consistent with american history. i mean, we had 500,000 people behind bars in 1980 and now we have 2.3 million, 2.4 million people behind bars and almost have 5,000 people behind bars just for a drug violation. there are as many people behind bars for a drug violation than we had for everything in 1980. it's not consistent with global standards and not consistent with our own history. it's costing a vast amount of money and i think what you see is for some of the d.a.'s and others are beginning to say enough is enough. we're seeing prison populations beginning to decline but when it comes down to the question, who are the first people we should stop putting behind bars? who is the people wh

trial is taking place. adam, thanks for being with us this evening. >> my pleasure, judge, thanks for having me. >> adam, you know all of the players here, and you watched the trial. how is the jury acting to the horrors of this case? >> i do know the players in the case. both are well seasoned attorneys. both have a lot of experience in this type of litigation, and i think they both vigorously argued for their sides to try to convince the jury of each of their points. i think what is interesting in this case is the first time i heard about it i thought to myself immediately the old saying when we were younger sticks and stones may break my bones, and words will never harm me. in this case harming is what took place as a result of the words that were used. it set the entire incident in motion. so i think this is a very interesting case. i think the players are doing exactly what they need to do. >> when you say words, you are talking about the fact that the victim in this case who was viciously stomped admittedly by this defendant said, why don't you go join your brother, meaning the

question is have you ever been allowed to testify regarding i.q. in a hearing or a trial using your program? >> yes, i just did that this weekend. so i testified this morning. i do know that -- so the atkins case was actually argued by a professor at the university of new mexico and he is constantly barraged by what's the best way to assess i.q., especially when you have these different tests and different measures, et cetera. i.q. is one of the most well studied things in psychology. so taking a brain scan and fitting your brain along a dimension and getting a value is just a slightly different way of doing it than giving you the tests and stuff like that. so i have not obviously testified to anything like that. i just tried to give that as an example. there is an enormous literature out there that is already peer-reviewed and published on i.q. there are dozens of papers. the big question is how well can i take a single person's brain scan and with what confidence can i get a number associated with it that we would derive an i.q. those measures and ways that we do that get better e
